    I don't want to duplicate the previous positive comments about this undoubtedly outstanding world class dictionary.Due to my engineering background and the fact that english is my second language, I thought that this dictionarywould be too advanced for me or perhaps I won't utilise its content to the full extend. I soon realised though thatI benefited a lot by exposing my knowledge to an unlimited tank of english words and descriptions like those included inthis dictionary. So, it was a good idea not to get the less expanded 'Oxford Students Dictionary' version, which is an exceptionally good dictionary too, but the 'Advanced' version is the one that you will never have to change or upgrade.The pages of the dictionary are thin, they feel like a cigarette paper, but don't worry, they don't have a'see-through' appearance, so your reading experience will be enjoyable. Personally, I prefer the paperback version,instead of the hardback, since it allows to bend the book and scroll through the pages faster when you searchfor a word.The included CD contains ALL words of the printed dictionary. It's very practical to use on your PC,it includes both english and american spoken pronunciation. Each word's description (where applicable) also includesthesaurus, word origin, verb forms and synonyms.I've read on the OED website, and this is another reason for me to get this dictionary, that the printedversions will probably stop forever. So, this book may perhaps become a collectable item!I'm glad I got a copy of it before it becomes available only in CD version.
